The Show: I’ve made a rod for my own back.

Stewart Lee decrying his own CD filing system.

Can we make a case for The Boo Radleys being filed in the Britpop shoebox, alongside such luminaries as Bennet, Jocasta and Thurman? Let’s not just limit them to Liverpool and Post-Punk / C86 / early Creation / Shoegaze. Here’s the proof – a 67% Britpop rating (courtesy of Top Trumps):

The Show: NOW That’s What I Call Meta

We pay our respects to a series of compilations so vast and all encompassing they actually merit their own compilation. A classic case of pop eating itself.

Besides the NOW references this week’s show is basically Miss Red, either performing or mixing. Or sometimes both at the same time.
